Hit Man File on Region 1 DVD

The 2004 gangster drama, Hit Man File, is now available on Region 1 DVD with English subtitles from Kino. "From the studio that brought you Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior," says the box.

Digitally Obsessed gives it a favorable review, saying that although "the gangster film has been done to death ... every now and then a nice, fresh entry comes along ... Hit Man File is one of those nice surprises."

Directed by Sananjit Bangsapan, it stars Chatchai Plengpanich as an ex-communist guerrilla who is trying to fit in to capitalist society as a paid assassin. He takes his orders from pretty nightclub manager Chaba (Bongkot Kongmalai), and his latest assignment puts him in the middle of a gang war.

This is one of those I gave a miss last year, and still haven't seen, thanks to the Thai DVD release with no English subs. But now it's possible, if only I could bring myself to spend the dough.
